My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon in Italy this month. We decided to hire a private guide to tour some wineries in Tuscany and I came across Alessandro's name on one of the forums.

Let me just say that this was the best experience we had during our 14 days in Italy! What a great day! Alessandro is amazing, professional. knowledgeable and very friendly. He took us to three amazing wineries where we got to know more about the traditions of Brunello di Montalcino. We learned so much, tasted amazing wines, met amazing families with incredible stories to tell (so listennnn), had an unbelievable lunch and didn't have to worry about driving back to the hotel.

I would recommend Alessandro anytime! Also, you can use his services to ship your bottles of wine back to the US for one shipping price - great deal.

Seriously - if you are planning to tour Tuscany this is your guy!

Che bravo! Alessandro is professional, dependable, conscientious, compassionate, knowledgeable, well-connected, well-informed, and a wonderful companion. In years of working with guides and drivers as a journalist, I would rate him among the best. And his region in Val d'Orcia deserves five stars too!

If you are planning a tour of the Tuscany region look no further than this friendly and professional company. Alexandro, Giovanni and Mario are the perfect hosts/drivers. Their passion for the Tuscany region makes for an incredible touring experience. They know theirs wines, they know the history and they will ensure that you get to see those "out of the way" places. Travel is in 7/8 seater Mercedes mini buses so they can drive right into those small villages.
If you are planning a visit to Italy consider them as your driver/hosts. Perfect for 2 or 3 couples travelling together. A truly 10 star experience.

We arranged several transfers in Tuscany , including a full day tour which was tailored to the areas we wanted to visit.
What I can say from our very first inquiry via email was the prompt reply, Alessandro was able to advise best options for transfers and costings also tailored a day tour based on the places we wanted to visit.
Transfers were always on time in immaculate vehicles, Alessandro is so knowledgeable about the Tuscan region and in particular Montalcino and the wine growing and wines is a particular specialty of his. Highly recommend you book you tours and transfers. Grazie Mille Alessandro and your team !!!

Alessandro is a friendly, humorous and knowledgeable guide who we cannot recommend highly enough.

We spent a day with Alessandro during our recent honeymoon trip.
We traveled to picaresque Tuscan towns like Greve and Sienna, visited stunning wineries and tasted some of the regions most impressive vintages.

Alessandro picked us up at our hotel and expertly guided us through the country side, skillfully navigating the twisting roads through the Tuscan hills in his Mercedes.

He offered insights into local culture and a vast array of information from throughout Italy's history.

Alessandro was amazing at letting us have our space and enjoy our time together on the trip while always being there when needed. We really enjoyed his personality and felt that his presence was integral to our good experience.

He arranged lunch at one of the most delicious and authentic restaurants we visited during our trip, Le Logge in Siena. My wife is still day dreaming about the amazing dessert we shared and my mouth is watering just thinking about the amazing pasta dishes and the rabbit fricassee entree I enjoyed.

As a wine expert and owner of a local wine shop in his hometown, Alessandro helped pick the perfect accompaniment to our meal, tailored to my personal preference.

Tuscany is a difficult area to see on foot or by just relying on infrequent public transportation. Hiring Alessandro was money well spent! He made our lives easy and allowed us to enjoy this beautiful place.

Thank you Alessandro for an amazing day, it was certainly a top highlight from our honeymoon.
